At present, the Ohio Supreme Court is in the process of creating its first ever unified sentencing database to allow for the collection of felony sentencing decisions from all courts in the State of Ohio. While its proponents argue that collecting such information will help ensure that justice can be carried out consistently across various jurisdictions, its opponents express fear that such information will be manipulated and misused for political purposes.
Join the Drug Enforcement and Policy Center for a virtual event featuring Ohio Supreme Court Justice Michael Donnelly. Justice Donnelly will discuss his position on why data-driven sentencing reform in Ohio is necessary and long overdue. He will provide concrete arguments for why data is key to better judicial decision making and fostering a sense of justice among Ohio residents.
Continuing Legal Education credit has been approved by the Ohio Supreme Court of Ohio. Ohio attorneys who attend the full event and participate in the polling launched throughout the event will be provided credit for their attendance.
While we are happy to provide a Certificate of Completion to attorneys who seek CLE credit in other jurisdictions, we will not be making any applications for CLE credit in any jurisdictions outside of Ohio.
This event will be presented with automated closed captions. If you wish to request traditional CART services or other accommodations, please contact Jana Hrdinova by email at email@example.com.
